Forum Rules

General Posting Guidelines

Think first before posting, think of the the way you phase your question especially when asking for help. Here are some general guidelines.


Please use SEARCH first! Tab top of forum.

There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique problem that it has been addressed on our forum before, please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject. It is easy to search – just click the “Search” tab at the top of the forum page.


Be DESCRIPTIVE and Do not use stupid topic names

Post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT. (Don’t use attention getting subjects. They do not get attention and only annoy people).

Here’s a great list of topic subjects YOU SHOULD NOT POST :

I have a question can you help me?

Generally ANYTHING similar to those is unacceptable. Just post your problem.

Here is a good example of a way to post a question

How can I explain to my child the reason they need to go to school?

Remember when people help you, they are doing YOU a favor

Be patient, help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with, and not snapping at people with garbage such as “if you are not going to help do not waste my time replying”.

Well, just when we thought that the long-time China scam artist had finally retired (or moved back to Belarus) we find him once again in Beijing with a new fraud but using his same MOof fake testimonials and reviews that are bought and paid for. It appears he graduated from illegal internships to black market China jobs. Although he advertises jobs that appear to be legitimate, Yuri Khlystov does so, only to get the resumes flowing in. His sales people motivated by high commissions will then call back to arrange a very legitimate - sounding interview. Some of the interviews are with real employers, although most are not authorized nor licensed by SAFEA to hire foreigners.

The rejects, those without 4-year university degrees or unable to get sponsored with a real Z visa, get a mystery call from a third party that is just so coincidental offering to sell you a fake degree and/or TEFL certificate so you can get that great teaching job offered by Laowai Career Center. If you buy them however, you will be a bit pissed off to learn that the great paying job they sold you on last week, "was already filled". But the "good news" is they have other employers that will take you if you are willing to "bend the rules a little bit" (aka break the Chinese law!)

At this point, you are either offered jobs with blacklisted schools and "training centers" that are not licensed to hire foreigners or you are offered an internship with a huge "international company" for an extra fee of course. If you go the internship route, you "probably" will be hired with a substantial salary when the internship finishes. If you take the crappy pay job with the blacklisted school, you stand a 50/50 chance of being caught working without a Z visa or a real degree and get yourself arrested, thrown in a Chinese jail for a month, fined $2,000 and then deported as a convicted felon. Of course, you could equally get lucky and go undetected. It's really a coin toss

Yuri is not a stupid guy. He has been running the most sophisticated scams in China since 2006 as you can see here: . He knows better than to put anything illegal on his web site or in written emails. All the shady illegal things his staff will "suggest" to you will be in verbal calls - like lying on your visa application.

If you want confirmation of how he works just Google "Winnie Maliko, Gi2c, China, internship" for a taste of their operating style. or just visit or this link for more background on this Yuri character: and also
So if you want a safe and legitimate job in China simply contact the HR department of any school or company directly and/or just fax or email your resume in English with "HR" & "FAO" on the cover page with your Skype and regular phone number, and a photo. They will contact you within 1 week if they have openings that require a foreigner with your skills. Chinese only process applications and resumes that arrive with photos so be sure to include one. Do not send copies of your passport until you establish two way confirmed communications.

If you are interested in a FREE internship with a Fortune 500 or MNC company, just follow the instructions here and you will avoid all the scams by doing it yourself with no brokers, agents, or middlemen involved: .
